so i was really eager when i got into the industry. i asked my customer what they wanted, then made it… i didn’t bother checking in with them in the meantime. turns out, they thought we were a management plant to take their jobs, so once our internship ended, they told their boss our tool didn’t work right. since we had already left, they just put our tool aside. it wasn’t broken, but we were so excited for our jobs we didn’t think that maybe the people we were making it to help needed to believe in us, not just our boss.
my first internship project was thrown away afterwards
